The Association of Firearm and Tool Mark Examiners (AFTE) is offering application for the AFTE Scholarship Program. This annual scholarship is open to master or doctoral students seeking a career in Forensic Science. Scholarships will be granted on a merit basis, without regard to age, race, sex, religion, or country of origin.
AFTE awards $2000.00 annually to students seeking a career in Forensic Science. Applications will be reviewed and recipients chosen by the Scholarship Committee prior to the annual AFTE Training Conference. Scholarships granted will be for the school year beginning on or about the following September. Scholarship renewals are not automatic; therefore, it will be necessary to apply every year for a scholarship. Scholarship funds approved will be sent directly to the applicant, payable to the applicant and the educational institution.
The winner will be awarded $2,000.
